Britain’s HR, recruitment and talent practitioners can gain a useful insight into their organisation’s ‘digital readiness’ by taking part in a global survey launched today by international assessment specialist cut-e, an Aon company.
The nine-minute online survey assesses your organisation’s ability to attract, hire, reward, develop and retain digitally-ready talent. It asks whether you feel your leaders are equipped to drive digital change, whether your culture supports digital working and whether your employees are ready and able to work collaboratively and virtually in a digital environment.
After completing the survey, you instantly receive a detailed report which summarises your organisation’s status on digital transformation and the development and acquisition of digital talent. The report provides recommendations and suggestions to help you not only improve in these three areas but also to enhance your hiring process and rewards programme.
cut-e will compile the survey results and use them anonymously in benchmarking reports, which will highlight the extent of organisational digital readiness globally and across specific countries and sectors.
“Every organisation needs to be digitally ready in order to compete in today’s volatile and uncertain business world,” said Dr Achim Preuss, Chief Technology Officer of cut-e. “A cultural change is required if you want to create agile work methods, innovative processes and fluid teams. This survey is essentially a diagnostic tool which will give you a personalised report on your organisation’s current digital capability, with interpretations, insights and recommendations. You’ll gain a greater understanding of how you can change your culture, improve your processes and make better decisions when selecting, developing and rewarding digital talent. We’ll also send you a global benchmarking report which will provide a worldwide snapshot of digital readiness, so you can see how your organisation fares against others.”
The initial summary report highlights that digital readiness is fundamentally a mindset, which is not related to the age of your employees.
“A new challenge for today’s organisations is to identify existing employees, and recruit new job candidates, who have digital potential,” said Dr Achim Preuss. “Knowing the key competencies required for digital working will help you to assess, develop and support your employees appropriately.”
The Organisational Digital Readiness survey is available online until 31 January 2019 at http://sgiz.eu/s3/Organizational-Digital-Readiness-Survey.
